Do you and your mother -in- law get along?

We get along but it feels so awkard when we are left in a room together. She asks the same questions how am I doing, how are the kids, then there is complete silence. I have been with my husband for 6 yrs and we always act like irs our first time meeting each other. At least I can say we don't have a bad relationship..its just non existent ...

  • We get along. She is a very strange lady though. Not the typical grandma/mother in law/mom.

  • We get along OK but I don't feel as if they have accepted me into the family yet and it has been 13 yrs.!

  • We get along pretty well. We are fairly comfortable around each other, and she is a big talker, so there's really never any dead space when we're together. lol
